What is Seize Them about?

According to a press release: "Brimming with warmth, humour and swordfights, SEIZE THEM! is a comedy road movie set in the dark ages. It follows Queen Dagan (Aimee Lou Wood), an egotistical yet lonely monarch, whose reign is toppled by the charismatic Humble Joan (Nicola Coughlan) and the treacherous Leofwine (Jessica Hynes). Now a fugitive with a hefty bounty on her head, the Queen embarks on a quest to regain the throne with the help of Shulmay (Lolly Adefope), a castle worker with mysterious motives, and Bobik (Nick Frost), a shit shoveler who dreams of a grander life. Her new friends and wild adventures make her question the kind of Queen she wants to be."
